Tonight's Rothbury moment is Stephen Ireland, being the only person as far as I know who shares his name with the country he plays for

Not that I am aware of. If he did it would have been the odd friendly match as he would have been mainly known for playing in one country.

Thats a good question, he certainly was involved together with others in something unique whilst associated with his career which is why I chose him as the subject of this 20q.

I think that finding his involvement in this unique thing he was associated with may not be easy as it is not that well publicised on the web.
